Sureslim Diet-week 17.

Week 17!!!!!

How the hell did that happen, I rarely stick to a diet for 17 days let alone 17 weeks!!!!

and apart from the christmas period where I put on 5lb I have lost weight every week.

When I look back to how unhappy I was in my body it makes me very sad, I used my weight as an excuse for everything, even if I didn't say it out loud, the little voice in my head would say, "you would enjoy that if you weighed less" (that little voice is a total bitch who I used to silence with cake and now silence with exercise) Even going out of an evening used to be hours of trying to find something to wear, not to look my best but to make me NOT look my worst.

I'm glad that woman has gone, I don't miss her at all. I used to act confident, but it was all an act, a way to put a brave face on for the world. Now it isn't an act. I have joined the gym and am going three times a week, I am eating healthily and I really feel that this isn't a diet-It is a way of life for me.

I am learning to love the woman that I am becoming, I really feel like a flower that after years of being a bud in the shade I am finally becoming a FLOWER.

My only regret is that it took so long to get this far. I wish I had done this years ago, But perhaps it isn't until I hit rock bottom that I realised I needed to make a long-term change.

Now my only worry is what I will wear this summer to show my new figure instead of hide it.

So how did I do this week?

I lost 4lb.

Very impressed with myself at the moment, I am loving being at the gym which I started last Thursday, I am going Monday, Wednesday and Fridays so am hoping to see some great results with the combination of both diet AND exercise.

I am now down to 12 stone 12lb. A total of 36lb (you do the maths) which is the lowest that I have been, I have lost all the weight I put on at christmas now and a lb extra for good luck.

I am looking forward to the week ahead, and I look forward to giving you an update next week too.

Here's to the week ahead, onwards and downwards x x

  1. This post made me well up a bit at my desk! I am so proud! You continue to be my inspiration :-)
    Ps - did you send me the info on sureslim?

  2. Well done - that's amazing. SO proud!

  3. Congrats! I started my new exercise regime this week (powerwalking - I dream of being able to run one day) and hope I can be at least half as successful as you've been! You really are inspiring! xx

  4. That's brilliant, well done you. I'm glad to hear that you've started going to the gym. As much as I'd love it if exercise wasn't necessary, it's always the combination of diet and exercise that works best. xxx

  5. You're really inspiring, love reading your posts. I joined Weight Watchers last week, I had my first weigh in last night and I lost 7 pounds so am very pleased and want to lose so much more. Like you say there are so many times I think things like that in my head and it is awful. Keep up the good work xx

  6. Well done for sticking to it!
